Typography is the designed form where the transfer of ideas and information with the help of signs is done. Typography invites to read the text, reveals the meaning of the text, links the text to other visual elements and creates appropriate reading conditions. In addition to communicating information and messages through an understandable form language, it also carries the claim of being an element expressed as a style, personality, and visual language. In this sense, it is important to arrange the typographical characters, such as font, form, colour, space in the media, in an effective way of conveying the message. Typography influences the pleasure of gazing than reading, which is carried out as a visual communication tool not only in the function of reading but also in form. In this context, expressive typography is an art form where text is highly visual or type becomes an image. Letters are not just abstract symbols, carriers of meaning; they are also real, physical shapes. In this paper, the chosen quotes show the main idea with some limitations. It is allowed to use any kind of typeface, just black/white colour in three pages. The comparison of qualitative research methods of students’ results shows the effects of expressive typography on the visualisation of the words as a result of this research.
